    ISTOCK
  We've pored over the latest from publishers and picked out a selection of books - by Western authors and/or on Western subjects - that we'd like to curl up with this fall. All have recently been released, or will be in the next few months; we've listed them here alphabetically by categories, according to the author's last name.
